Step 2. Down 2 ibuprofen or aspirin.

The U.S. Department of “Cozy”

Step-wise:

1.Over here (on Real Clear Politics) is a story about Megyn Kelly going after DNC whozit Donna Brazile for alleged question leaking.

2.Over at the Daily Caller we read how “Andrea Mitchell Falsely Claims Donna Brazile Leak Story Has Been ‘Completely Knocked Down’ [VIDEO].”

3.And HERE we read about Andrea Mitchell: “She married her second husband, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, twenty years her senior, on April 6, 1997 following a lengthy relationship.”

4.One more logical hop: Here at NewsBusters we read about a “Takedown: NBC Strategically Airs 7 Anti-Trump Shows.”

5.Another NBC item “With Empty Rooms and Bookings Plummeting, Trump Hotels Are Taking a Beating .“

6.A lot more even-handed look at hotels may be found in Travel Weekly which doesn’t have a political axe to grind as they report “Hotels’ book-direct push failing to slow down OTAs.” But how can this be? How can an ndustry-centered organization mention outfits like Hilton, Intercontinental, Starwood, Hyatt and Marriott without trying to slam Trump? Can someone please hand them An axe?

Have the ibu’s or aspirins kicked-in yet?

How People Really Work

The U.S. Department of Cozy, with offices right next door to the American Aristocracy may nont be able to limit choice forever. Look across the puddle:

Some of the people in Europe, for example, seem to be waking up to the E.U. swindle.

Swindle did he say? Mr. Cynical is reminded of the description by financial whiz Jim St. Clair, that the EU is a collection of 13 (at that time) bankrupt countries all banding together to pretend they aren’t.

Bet you didn’t realize the Belgium highwaymen were so crafty, did ‘jah?. More countries were added since. Then the big Islamic Reconquista of France…it all gives the illusion of growth. But we know better. Globalism on the march.

The EU business plan is simple: Add more countries and continue adding refugees while pretending to “grow.” Although, Ukraine may not be tossed in the pot for another 10-years, no matter how many cookies the U.S. passes out in Kiev.

So Ure clear: The New Game is import people, pretend that is growth. Sound familiar? Which leads to…

Hillary as ‘Merica’s Merkel?

She may not have the German accent down, but she owns political-speak. Why the Trumpeteers aren’t screaming this personality parallel escapes me. Ure is often dense.

Ecclesiastes explains there is nothing new under the Sun. And it has all been done before. And sure, “Elites Want a Borderless World, but Voter’s Don’t” and all that. There are answers:

Politics is all marketing, or nearly so.

When you get a successful Commie in one country, it spawns more Commies in another country. They try to outr-commie eachg other.

Works across the political spectrum, too. See WW II: Fascist in Germany, wannabe in Italy.

Eventually, you will sit back with thought-patterns like “Which came first, the Castro or the Che?”Breshnev or Mao?”

Coming: “Clinton or Clinton?”

I’d don’t understand how Merkel went from being a research chemist to being orchestrator in chief of mass migration. But then again, I don’t understand the Obama immigration scheme either, where under-vetted refugees from other continents skip ahead of lawful applicants.

That shows you how limited Mr. Cynical’s mighty mental powers are at this hour.

Institution Collapse

This is fun and it’s one both obvious and totally missed by the mainstream.

First we read in the Wall St. Journal this morning how “Plummeting Newspaper Ad Revenue Sparks New Wave of Changes.”

Then, already suffering from audiences down in some cases near 25% because of disrespecting egotistical players, now we’re reading how the “NFL Struggles As Another Star Player Is Accused Of Domestic Abuse.”

What will be the next “institution” to bite-it?

Grand Theory

Mr. Cynical’s lifetime friend, the retired major, who’s down visiting has a neat theory that explains why Washington can never fix itself through the legislative process as I (delusionally and hopefully) proposed Thursday.

“It’s a re-run of the Senate of Rome.”

Damn, I hate it when he’s right.

All Comes Back to Money

You can’t buy happiness” is one of those U.S. Department of Cozy lies told by the Elites to keep the competition from riff-raff like us down.

There is virtually no press released hype going around this morning. Usual Fed-speakers and Baker –Hughes rig count this afternoon, but quiet for now.

This reduces us to scalping trades. A week ago the S&P closed at 2132.98. Thursday’s close was 2,141.34, but the futures are down 7 so a completely wasted week in finance. Can you imagine 6-million people in financial services working all week for a lousy 6-10th’s of one percent? Sheesh.

Deflation Continues

…at about a 5% rate, figures Mr. Cynical.

You look at the current run rate of M1 released Thursday by the Fed:

clip_image001

From 10% you back out inflation atr CPI which we will call 2.5% and then back out nominal GDFP growth of another 2.5% though both are terrible squishy.

All spells unsustainable, so whatever wins in November will be having a terrible time a year from now, we figure.

Thankfully, there are still plenty of weekends between now and then for prepping.

And prayer, too: That Putin’s massing fleet doesn’t run afoul some trigger-happy midshipman and light off World War III.

After you read how “Russian warships sail down British coast, likely en route to Syria…” pay close attention and track this fleet. If they head out toward the Canary Islands, re-read our Peoplenomics report “Scenarios: Election-Day Seismic War.”

Comments

Mr. Cynical’s News-Coaching Glass — 49 Comments

  1. How many people would agree out of however many there are that urban survival needs an extended comment section other words instead of just having 10 or whatever we need to be able to go back and see what the comments are because as it is now there’s no search on the comments the search is only on the material provided by urban survival and people nomics

  2. I’m posting a link here that they follow and I think this guy is really fantastic about what he’s doing and I think we can all learn a lot from him so that’s why I’m posting it here we go. https://youtu.be/KKPiRGH5K7g

  3. George, I don’t know if it possible but it would be nice for a link to coping to be at the bottom of comments also.That way my lazy finger doesn’t have to scroll back up to it. Just a thought. My hands are tired after a long day. Lol

  4. For drime (with the ‘acute’ which I don’t know how to do on the computer) – yes, but Americans were primed for the excess via the ‘robber barons’ like Vanderbilt . . . and despite the Depression – we have a love affair with money. Having money means for many being ‘right with God’ in fact, there are churches where acquiring money is ‘worshiped’.

  5. the MSM-driven trolls are even here, in these comments. Take your Trump bashing elsewhere, and congratulations on your support of one of the worst, most criminal people ever to hold office.

    • I wonder about the appropriateness of having a POTUS who calls people babies, losers, crooks, fat, sweaty, who makes references to his genitalia, calls the spouses of other candidates names and says they hate the country or Catholics.

      I’m not voting for Hillary or Trump. I can’t stand either one.

  6. Nice job Mark, with the “goose-stepping on command” just like all of the other mainstream-media Trump-bashers. Go on back to your DNC-financed trolling elsewhere.

  7. Ask me who my enemies are they aren’t you will the guy next door or in the next County next city or in this country or that country its toes who have the patents that keep us from going forward in our life as intended to Fritz from poverty worldwide

    • Even the Assassins are not finding peace so what happens when you don’t find peace it means you retaliate

      • Why in the world when they get $100,000 a year to assassinate people would they do it for $1 that makes you think that ( Karma) is where you want to be

  8. OK I will try to help you out by gEorge is called a half pay of an officer I mean that’s for starters you know I’m here we have all these officers of Corporations and government who are way up there so I mean I would start out and just say hey half and half of that that would get us going on where you want to be

  9. Twitter’s down and comments section down on breitbart, but not huff post’s. Various flurries of activity in London. Hmmm. . .

    • Somewhere in here it should dawn on people why we have our own comment system and community on Urban, huh?

  10. I should not be telling you all this but there’s going to be a (hypothArtic event) the spelling is intentionally wrong

  11. Did you say swindled— oh don’t get me started.(1-10) (5,000,000,000—7,600,000,000)

    • We have not fulfilled our agreement for releasing peace Technologies_-+$#& so the penalties will be GRAVIPAUSE

      • Follow the feeling you get at the back of your neck that’s called the (NAPE), -. – if you need help with that lay on your belly the side of your back and you’ll notice something happening there if you can’t it might be because you’re eating too much and drinking too much and have you ever noticed how the back is keep yourself warm when you lay on your belly in freezing weather

  12. How can this be true – “It’s a re-run of the Senate of Rome.” ?

    We still have not elected a horse to senate.

  13. Ref: All spells,

    “I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
    I aim with my eye.

    I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
    I shoot with my mind.

    I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.
    I kill with my heart.”

    Roland of Giliad. The Gun Slinger: Steven King

  14. “All spells unsustainable, so whatever wins in November will be having a terrible time a year from now, we figure.”

    When 85 people own 50% of the world’s wealth it’s time to change the economic paradigm; Elections will NOT do it!

  15. The major is right. Corrupt systems can never be corrected from within. Hence, the need for revolutions instigated from the outside. DC cannot fix itself; we, the people, have to apply the appropriate pressure to fix it.

  16. The media isn’t biased towards Trump…not in the least…In fact…the only reason he even got the nomination is that he was given tens of millions of dollars in free advertising as well as a ratings booster for being a media clown. He was the reality guy in a made for news reality spotlight. His trailer trash base are only crying in their moonshine now because his name calling, racist, off color, women hating schtick has gotten old.

    The recent negative news cycle we are seeing right now is all caused by him as well. His strategy is all news…good or bad is good news…Since he isn’t smart enough to say anything of political substance or worth…he continues to spew contentious vomit inducing comments.

    If nobody can see how this Neanderthal is so unfit to be a leader…then no wonder the Honey BooBoo, Duck Dynasty and the Khardasians Crowd are supporting him. This is his base…But it is not America. This is dumbed down America and I don’t want my country to be defined that way. All you Trump supporters with a brain should be ashamed of yourselves.

    • And despite all of that he was a history making landslide winner in the primary …….making Reagan look like an amateur ……. by the way the Kardashian crowd are Democrats – and additionally you misspelled Kardashian….. Yours Truly – Mr Trailer Trash

      • The fact that I misspelled that families name and you know the correct spelling…help makes my point. You Trump supporters are really a bunch of braniacs lol.

        The conspiracy theory nut jobs are out in force today. I don’t know what version of the debates or what crazy right wing propaganda you are watching or listening too…but I have never, ever been more embarrassed about a political party…my political party BTW for over 40 years…The GOP has lost it…

        You want pandering? You want bias? The right wing nut media has all of you brainwashed into their version of the news…which is hate mongering, unfiltered and un documented lies and half truths. They are making money of of all of you fools and laughing all of the way to their respective banks.

        I have a very, very good friend in the media…He gets it and he is sick of all media…but especially the non-sensical and opportunistic right wing media that is taking advantage of its lower to middle class base and hoping they are either too stupid or too busy to fact check any of the crap they have to say.

        This is Trumps strategy…He is acting like the worlds dumbest carbon life form…because he is trying to stoop down to the level of the downtrodden and weak minded fools that have nowhere to go and think King Trump can save them from their inability to find their own way.

    • Why should I be ashamed of myself when Mr. Trump, fair and square, beat down 15 professional liars? The “white trash” love him, and you call his supporters “name callers”! What are you, an urban faggot? There, got in my name calling!!! LOL!!!

    • Compared to Hillary? Hillary Clinton has had plenty of real accomplishments. She’s made millions marketing herself as inspirational! She managed to marry a man who worked hard to achieve power. She’s really good at overspending on pantsuits. She won a Grammy!
      While SecState she destroyed several nations. Look at Libya – now has the Al Quida flag flying nationwide!

      Clinton uses her tenure as Secretary of State to boost her credibility on foreign policy. But when asked what she accomplished in her years as the head of America’s foreign service, she said her greatest milestone was publishing her own biography, Hard Choices. When reporters asked State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki to name Clinton’s top achievement, she passed the buck: “I am certain that those who were here at the time, who worked hard on that effort, could point out one.”

      We are still waiting!

      • Hillary Clinton gave a disputable description of the location of Mosul, the largest city held by the Islamic State group, during Wednesday’s final major-party presidential debate, but pundits and the press did not pounce.

        “What’s really important here is to understand all the interplay. Mosul is a Sunni city. Mosul is on the border of Syria,” the Democratic nominee told a domestic audience of about 70 million during the debate made memorable by bitter barbs and insults.

        How can anyone think this women is intelligent to be POTUS after these and other remarks proving she is ignorant of basic truths a former SecState would know (if engaged and intelligent)

    • Mark, it seems like the media has brainwashed you too. I know hundreds of people that are not moonshine drinking rednecks,that support Trump. Quit listening to MSM, do your research.

      • Have you been to a Trump Rally? I have in…the Silicon Valley…a very upscale and world class section of the Bay Area. Not one rally participant was from the Silicon Valley. I know this…because there wasn’t one Tesla, Mercedes, BMW, electric or hybrid in the parking lot. Drive down Highway 101 at rush hour…that’s all you see…It was a sea of pick-up trucks and old model junkers…and that is not an exaggeration. Inside, I felt like I was in a combination AA meeting/rural fairground has-been country western band concert. Hillary was right…it was a basket of deplorables …looking for hand-outs from the “king.”

    • And does that mean you have been ok with all our past leaders…..and since we are in a very grave condition as a nation and its people…you are still ok with more of the same “political substance ” that has brought us here….then I, who you label, TRUMP supporters with a brain, reject your ‘definition of your country’…MOST Trump supporters are Middle class AMERICAN’s(real, not recently arrived) who have found their jobs ,children values, morals ,religion and money,under attack by Marxist and socialist agendas,put upon us by those that YOU would consider fit to lead….from both parties…this is NOT how I want my country to be defined….TRUMP is taking on ALL corrupt ,globalist,anti religious politicians and individuals. This IS the leader too’ DEFINE this REPUBLIC’….which is NOT not a Marxist ‘democracy’….imho

      • Trump can’t even name one globalist politician…Inwould love to challenge him to name 10n countries anywhere in the world and their leaders…I doubt he could actually name 4.

        And as far as anti-religious? Religion has no place in politics period. I want a leader that leads not pontificates. Unless you want a society like Iraq, Syria, Etc that puts extreme religious ideology ahead of human rights. I have a mentor who has helped in my success and he said that God is just a typo for Good. Worship practice and embrace all that’s Good and your life will be fulfilled.

      • Americans have seen enough “Trump car bashing” videos to make even somreone like me resolve to drive the old pick up, noty the Lexus to an event where rude effs would target my Trump stickers as an easy target of their socialist rabble rousers in the street.

        Surely you’ve seen this and grok the implicates?

    • Mark, REALLY???? YOU went to a Trump rally???? Oh, hey, okay!!! Yep, sorry, the fact that all you could do was look at cars, says a lot about your sorry AZZ. Judging a book by its cover! You must not realize that CARS are for driving distances; he isn’t speaking in every town in California, so people aren’t allowed to drive to see him???? Not in your world, right? I mean REALLY how insulting you are! Did you miss how the DNC bused people into the Trump rallies and had their loons assault Trump supporters? OH, did you miss that??? Ignoring EVERYTHING wikileaks has uncovered about Hillary via the PODESTA email LEAK is unforgivable! To come on here and not only show us your ignorance, but you demonstrate it so boldly, just like the MSM bought off press! Ha Ha HO, OVER THE HILL HAS GOT TO GO!!! We are sick of being lied to, sick of being fleeced, sick of being led like lemmings to the big open mouths of the BIG SHARKS, you know the usual characters: FED/DEMONCRATS/RINO’s/GEORGIE BOY SOROS/OBAMA WAMA TRANSFORMA/THE GLOBALIST CORPORATIONS AND THEIR LOBBYS AND TRADE AGREEMENTS/THE UN/THE EU (YEAH, THEY GOT THEIR HAND IN AMERICA, TOO), WE ARE SICK OF IT ALL; WE ARE SICK OF THE CRAPPY FOOD, POLLUTED WATER, CHEMTRAILS AND TOO MANY OTHER POPULATION REDUCERS TO COUNT.
      OH, NOW THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT COUNTING, LET’S COUNT 55 MILLION ILLEGALS AND MORE CROSSING OVER EVERY SINGLE DAY, SINCE THAT MSM THAT YOU THINK IS SO IN THE TANK FOR TRUMP CAN’T EVEN COUNT FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS!!!

      WE ARE SICK OF THE INSOURCING OF PEOPLE TO TAKE OUR JOBS FROM THE GROUND UP, AND WE ARE SICK OF THE TRICKS THAT ARE USED TO KEEP THE H1B AND L1 VISA HOLDERS TAKING OUR HIGHER UP JOBS (OH, YOU MEAN, YOU DIDN’T SEE THE FACTS THAT HILLARY TOOK MILLIONS FROM THAT INDIAN JOB SHOPPER, TATA CONSULTING SERVICES, SO THEY COULD STEAL OUR JOBS FROM QUALIFIED/CAPABLE AMERICANS?) http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3480962/posts?page=5

      OH, AND ONE MORE BIG THING, WE DON’T WANT ANY MORE UNVETTED REFUGEES! WE WANT OUR COUNTRY THAT MANAGES TO BOMB THE MIDDLE EAST INCESSANTLY, TO GROW A PAIR AND HERALD A 200 BILLION DOLLAR ‘MIDDLE EAST RECOVERY PLAN’ EXPENDITURE AND REBUILD THOSE COUNTRIES THAT THEY HAVE DESTROYED IN THE LAST 20 YEARS AND SEND ALL THEIR OWN CITIZENS BACK HOME; WE WANT A NEW WAY OF DOING UP THE WORLD, WE WANT A COALITION OF MIGHT TO DO RIGHT! WE WANT ENGLAND/FRANCE/GERMANY/ISRAEL/SAUDI ARABIA/TURKEY/ETC. TO GO AHEAD AND FORM A ‘COALITION OF THE GREAT RETURN’ WITH AMERICA AND ‘SEND THOSE PEOPLE HOME!’ WE WANT THEM ALL TO RAISE THE MONEY, TOO, INSTEAD OF PUTTING TRILLIONS ON THE BACKS OF AMERICAN TAXPAYERS LIKE THEY DID WITH ALL THOSE ILLEGAL WARS. WE DON’T WANT AN ANNIHILATION OF THE CULTURE OF EUROPE OR AMERICA. WE ARE SICK OF WAR! THE SAME WARS THAT THE MSM NEVER VETTED, NEVER ASKED THE RIGHT QUESTIONS, NEVER CHECKED NOTHING AND LED THIS NATION RIGHT DOWN THE RAT HOLE!

      Yeah, I’ve met a few people like you; you never learn, YOU are the one who thinks you know it all, YOU are the one who won’t listen to anyone or any evidence to change that concrete mind of yours! There are hundreds of articles and enough proof to sink a battle ship, yet you cannot see ONE thing except how bad Trump is! YOU WENT TO ONE TRUMP RALLY, WAAAAAA! WHY DON’T YOU GET ON YOUTUBE AND WATCH AND HEAR EVERY SINGLE ONE HE HAS DONE SO YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT WHAT HE PROPOSES? Instead you write that: ‘he isn’t smart enough to say anything of political substance or worth.’ Again, showing your true colors of filth! WHY do you think Trump is bringing in so many people to hear him speak? WHY did he beat the record for the most votes EVER in a Presidential primary? WHAT is he saying that is resonating with the AMERICAN PEOPLE??? That’s right, you don’t know, cause your head is stuck in that empty coal mine that Obama and Hillary closed! Yeah, the AMERICAN PEOPLE, remember us? WE are the ones that built this country and we are the ones being sold down the drain, being sold out and the evidence is everywhere, EXCEPT IN YOUR MIND, YOU CAN’T FIND IT ANYWHERE! FOR SHAME!!! OH, P.S. Your media FRIEND has to be on some kinda payroll to not know of even ONE thing Hillary has done illegally; I mean REALLY? Setting up a private server, setting up private emails for her and her staff, and then sending and receiving classified emails on that UNSECURED NON GOVERNMENTAL server AND then destroying TOP SECRET EVIDENCE is just a-okay with you?

      It is people like you who make the rest of us realize that A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!

      • 1. This is our longest comment of the month.
        2. We will be opening a betting pool on the author’s blood pressure.

      • Ok dude…calm down…put your tin-foil hat back on…and start to pack for Costa Rica or someplace that will save you and your paranoid mind from a Hillary embarrassingly lopsided victory. It truly is Trumps crazy base that is helping Hillary. When I read rants like this…it really frightens me to think how on earth people think this way….I saw it at the surreal Trump rally I attended. Good luck to you.

  17. Remember: “No matter how cynical you get, it’s never enough to keep up.”

  18. Good rant, but no drugs this early. Maybe a good dark rum with one cube. One cube? From the sailboat days where cubes where more valuable than gold!

  19. Re: voters don’t want borderless country. Then how come every opportunity they have to vote for no borders they do? We vote for shirts from Vietnam, cars from Mexico, Iphones from China and lamb from New Zealand.

    • You know why, so don’t act so sly. Controlling the means of production, controlling the output. When i go to my grocery store, there are no USA avacodos for example, and there never will be. It is nice to blame Americans, when one of the responsible parties is running for President. But let’s ignore the canary in the coal mine, oops, they shut down that coal mine and it got sold out to a foreign corporation. Gee, bad Americans, you didn’t buy US coal….oops, nope, climate change America and you get to take the sword for the whole world!!!
